Eh, didn't I just read this book? Seriously, this books came 3 books before the last one, but the plot was practically identical. Shun anyone who's different and not perfect like the Wakefield twins. Bitchiest middle school children ever.
This story was an eye opener to how cruel and nasty Jessica Wakefield and her friends could be in this series. The thing that bothers me about this is that there were no repercussions to their actions and they never seem to learn from their experiences. There is also a lack of remorse in most of the books I've read. I was never as much of a fan of the Sweet Valley series as I was with The Babysitters Club and I think it was because the girls of the BSC were nicer and more relatable.

Wow, I'd forgotten how depressing this one is. Nora moves in with her grandparents because she's just been orphaned and most of the kids at SV Middle School proceed to bully her dreadfully because they think her new home is haunted and her grandmother is a witch. They then call her badly disabled grandfather a zombie, because why not?

I wouldn't have minded all that, except for the fact that there's really no sign that the kids end up feeling bad for tormenting a girl who's lost her mother a mont
I loved this series as a kid. Being an identical twin myself I was excited to read about the Wakefield twins. You could pick up from anywhere in the series and start reading them. It might have been better that way in case you expected continuity.
I started with this book about a local girl they bully because she doesn't fit in. This turned out to be a common plot in SVT and the high school books.
Even as a kid though I'd be disappointed when none of the books ever delivered on the supernatural p

oh wow I read this one when I was just like 8 or so a matter of fact I was able to collect all of the series of sweet valley twins books but for some reason I left them somewhere. So I got some of them than I just gave them to my cousin which she didn't have any books to read.
So hard to put any of these down, I just loved them so much. I just loved going to library sales and finding sweet valley books there. It was always a great treasure hunt.

My sixth grade best friend and I read this together. We scared ourselves silly by reading with only a flashlight.
I loved these books when I was in junior high! Great series, and this was one of my favorites.
